No problem, feel free to take it over. I'll remove it from here once that's done .

Yeah, didn't really think about the 'no number keys' issue... ^^. IMHO, yeah, let's avoid the SHIFT+ALT+top row of letter. I'm not even sure if that won't trigger some of the official ALT+Letter hotkeys (if there are any)?

Yeah, browser & usbnet seems like a good idea. Right now, nothing else springs to my mind... .

Just don't forget to update the install script with the md5 checksums of the default bundled hotkeys script .

What hotkeys would you suggest for screen orientation? There would need to be a different one for each orientation?

To save keys I guess have one key to toggle portrait/landscape (the more important one) and one to toggle "left"/"right" (less useful). Since -unlike something like Copy or Undo- these are not actions that have standard precedents in terms of key assignments, maybe choose seldom-used ones, like "J" and "K".

In light of the discovery of ~exec on the Kindle 3, it looks like I will need to make a package for that too. I think it is pretty easy though: once the user has copied the files to storage, something like ~exec /mnt/us/hotkeys/install.sh

Thank you for this great effort.
But still not work with my Kindle DX, even after I reset it !

Six year thread bump!

Okay, I have my old dusty Kindle2 and the 5way is broken. I've installed the hotkeys script, rigged Alt+W, A, S, D, and Enter to Up, Left, Down, Right, Select via custom .sh scripts.

These work great if I get into a menu, but the home screen doesn't seem to do the proper thing. I'm having a hell of a time selecting books.

Anyone have any tips on how to get this to work?

Nothing that would be of much help.
But you can always install only one book at a time.

That should simplify the selection of which book to read.
And if it was War and Peace, the solution might outlast the K2.

Haha. The battery is certainly on its last legs. I may open it up again and see if I can disassemble the joystick to get it working.

May be time to finally upgrade to something nice, like a Voyage...

The PW-3 is on-sale now at a very reasonable price (about 1/2 that of the Voyage).

The only thing 'Voyage' that it lacks are the hyptic frame buttons and the ambiant front light control.

And you should not wait too long to decide -
The most likely reason for the sale is to get rid of all the fw-5.6.5 (or earlier) versions in stock.
(5.6.5 is the only one you can jailbreak without opening it up)
